Continuing in the tradition of my Very Short Commentaries, I thought I’d write some haikus about the various books of the Bible. A haiku is a three-line poem with a structure of five, seven, then five syllables. Since the topic in my class today is the Petrine literature, I figured I’d start there.
You’re God’s people now,
though you’re exiles in this world.
Cry out for soul food!
Don’t get taken in:
Christ is coming in due time.
Until then, be good.
Contend for the faith!
Perverse teachers among you?
God’s judgment is sure.
Anybody else want to play? Either send me a link to your work or share it in the comments.
Update 1: Joseph Kelley has contributed haikus on the Pentateuch at his blog, כל־האדם.
Update 2: Weekend Fisher presents the Song of Solomon as a limerick, which seems strangely fitting.
